Not long ago, all of my websites were hacked, including my lovely TheArtisticMom.com site. It’s been a bit heart-breaking, but I’m trying to see it as the perfect opportunity to start fresh and create something even more special.
I’ve not been great at backing things up, so everything has been lost, including the photos of Lena’s birth that I posted on that blog shortly before our entire harddrive crashed and we lost all those precious photos (or at least lost them until we can recover them again from the harddrive that’s sitting in my drawer now…). Yes, obviously I didn’t learn my lesson the first time.
However, tonight I randomly came across one blog post that hadn’t been totally destroyed from the hacking (minus a link to buy cialis now stuffed within the text – are they seriously that desperate for sales?).
So, I pulled it out of the ashes & wanted to post it here, especially in honor of this part of my life when I was learning so much about life and motherhood that has now helped to shape my current love affair with both.
Lately, Marie & I have been really fired up about this powerful concept that applies to motherhood so perfectly. For me, it started from hearing Marianne Williamson discussing the concept that: “the function on Earth is to heal and the function of Heaven is to create” (referenced from “A Course in Miracles”). Marianne went on to explain that Heaven is referred to, not just as a place, but as a state of Oneness, including Oneness with God, Truth, Light and your Sacred Self.
Within the realm of motherhood and life in general, we tend to think of things so much as separateness. You have your spirit, mind, body, relationships, resources and whatever else that are all in their own categories. However, when we unify those worlds, allowing our spirit/Sacred Self (which is always connected to God) to lead our lives we can create healing in all the Earthly things, like our body, mind, relationships, resources and whatever else comes our way.
Tapping into the light within each of us will automatically connect us to God and His light. In reality, the light is all the same thing, flowing from the grace of a God who desires us to become creators of goodness, love and beauty in our lives.
Thomas Moore said, “Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.” This isn’t just a nice thought. It’s a reality that we can take part in every day by seeking, connecting to and experiencing Oneness.
What do these quotes lead you to think about in your own life? How do you experience Oneness within all the tasks of daily living, especially in motherhood?
